I work at a local Non-Profit as an Advocate. Raising kids and working mad hours makes it difficult to meet people. Which leads me to the online world...
My hobbies are endless: gardening, welding, painting, etc... I enjoy hiking in the woods, swimming in rivers, road trips, curling up on the couch watching a movie, wandering aimlessly with a warm cup of coffee and entertaining conversation.
I am familiar with struggles and that feeling of "What is the point of it all?" After many bumps and bruises I have come to a peaceful place in my life. 2 years of community college, 4 years at Evergreen State College and I stumbled into a career I love. A wise old woman told me "find the thing that pisses you off or heals you and that energy will sustain you in a career". I took her advice and work with woman and children trying to re-build their lives. I also work with inmates at the Jail and Prisons.
I enjoy swimming into the depths of the soul as well as the simplicity and innocence. This life is filled with endless paradoxes. Such as: I have to die to live, I have to give it away to keep it...(If you know what I am talking about we might be in the same library, maybe even the same book...finding someone on the same page is pretty rare...) I believe that relationships come in many forms and they all can be fulfilling on levels.
One thing I know for sure is that life is best spent laughing, I constantly make an ass of myself and enjoy my dorky side. I enjoy individuals who know how to let the sh*t go and move through the darkness to watch another sunrise.
